FAPOURRI SCRIPT-STORYLINE by Kiko Arroyo  |  Posted in Articles  |  on Wed, Dec 1, 2004

The FAP scriptwriting just ended. Many called but only few submitted – what we mean were the calls we received, mostly requesting for an extension. The twin contest had an original deadline of Oct. 30 but was extended to Nov. 30 in order to accommodate the provincial entries. All submissions will undergo the technical screening, i.e. entries violating the rules on the number of sequences, number of pages and other technical requirements, will be discarded. All valid entries will be raffled off to the 5 judges whose identities are still classified until now but the contest committee promised to divulge their names simultaneous with the announcement of winners. Each judge will make an evaluation and come up with a list of their choices – a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 8 entries to constitute the semi-final round. All semifinalists will be read and evaluated by all the judges to produce the final 10. A deliberation of sorts will decide the 3 winners from the 10 finalists. The same process will be applied to the storyline except that the storyline will have 5 winners.

We received numerous requests to publish the finalists or even the semi-finalists for the benefit of the writers. There’s no promise but FAPWEB will try to convince the judges to lend us the score sheets. Developments on the contest will be published in this website from time to time. You can also email fap_web@yahoo.com for updates and inquiries. FAPWEB has a policy of replying to all emails.

FLASH!!! Due to numerous requests, THE FILM ACADEMY HAD EXTENDED THE DEADLINE FOR THE SCRIPT AND STORYLINE WRITING CONTEST TO JANUARY 15, 2005 . The contest rules and entry form will be back on this website soon.

Mula sa Mowelfund. Kamakailan lang ay pinasinayaan ang TAMA NG CINEMA theater ng Mowelfund. Medyo unique ang dating ng pangalan ngunit may sapat na dahilan naman. Ang makabagong equipment, mula sa projectors, sound system hanggang sa carpet, ay donasyon ni Mr. Ng Meng Tam, isang low-profile theater builder. Ang unveiling ng marker ay pinangunahan ni Mother Lily Monteverde at Miss Susan Roces. Kasabay nito ay ang inauguration din ng Bulwagang Jose Nepomuceno sa 2 nd floor. Ang pumutol ng ribbon ay ang Action King ng Philippine movies na si Fernando Poe, Jr. katulong si Laurice Guillen at Paeng Nepomuceno. Si Paeng ang magaling na international bowler at record holder ng Guiness book sa pagkakapanalo ng 3 world cup tournaments. Siya ay apo ni Jose Nepomuceno, ang itinuturing na Ama ng Pelikulang Pilipino.

An oversight by our website developer. The poll for the articles was not properly in place hence the tally in the Archive Page are not accurate. The article poll is intended to provide readers an easy way of voicing out their opinion, they can either vote for or vote against the article. FAPWEB will be monitoring the polls and take into consideration the eventual results.

With this Dec. 1 issue, the polls are now in good running condition.

More than 200 entries pa lang ang natatanggap namin sa Name the Statuette contest. Ang deadline nito ay Jan. 31, 2005 kaya sana mag-submit na kayo dahil kapag may kapareho ang statuette name na ibinigay nyo tapos nanalo eh di yung unang nag-submit ang bibigyan ng premyo. Ang lahat ng entries ay ipapasok sa database namin at matapos ang deadline saka ibibigay sa 3 judges ang lahat ng submitted statuette names. After determining the winners ay saka lang malalaman kung sino ang submitter. As in any contest, we are following a procedure to make it fair and honest. By the way, hindi puwede ang direct email na entry, dapat gamitin ang submission form na nandito sa www.fapweb.org .

To the emailers, send your inquiries to our new email address fap_web@yahoo.com for a speedy response.
